Beyond the basics - AR-15 STYLE RIFLES

Our Introduction to AR-15 Rifles/Carbines is a great way to begin your formal education on this rifle platform. This class is great for the beginner shooter or for shooters that simply want more formal training or familiarization. Whether you would like to hunt, practice precision rifle shooting, or simply become more familiar with the ever-popular modern sporting rifle, this is the class for you. Students wishing to bring in rifles other than an AR-15 please understand that we will only be covering the AR platform. However, there are many parallels of this system that relate to other platforms like the AK-47 and Bullpup designs. You are welcome to bring these firearms but the class will focus on the AR-15. All specific questions for other platforms will need to be diverted to a private instruction.
